    ECHO CARBON XL 590 FLY ROD : 5WT, 9'0"

    The Echo Carbon XL 590 Fly Rod is perfect choice as your primary all purpose trout rod for almost any situation. This is the sweetest, smoothest casting 5wt on the market in this price range. The Carbon XL (extra-light) will present a dry fly with delicate precision at 80ft, throw a nymph rig with ease, and toss streamers with accuracy. It also excels fishing for smallmouth bass. This versatile 5wt will cover most fishing situations for trout or smallmouth.

    Tim Rajeff spent over a year designing these rods so they would have an exceptional smooth action and feel to appeal to a broad range of anglers, while being virtually effortless to cast. Echo is legendary for building exceptional, high-performance rods that rival the best rods on the market, at a much lower price. The Echo Carbon XL fly rods are the sweetest casting rods and compare to high-end rods that cost 4 times as much. If you are looking for a fantastic, medium-action trout or smallmouth bass rod at a very modest price, the Echo Carbon XL was made for you!

    Echo Carbon XL
    Colin (North Carolina) | February 22nd, 2022
    This rod is an extremely good value. It has crisp casting, is lightweight, and performs better than other 5wt rods I've tried that are significantly more expensive. For it's price range, you cannot beat this rod.

    Very nice rod for a nice price.
    SHAWN J RHODERICK (Indiana) | September 16th, 2021
    Purchased this rod to fish for trout on a trip to WY. I am very pleased. The rod casts well and feels good in hand. I would recommend the Carbon XL to anyone wanting to add a nice casting 5wt at a very nice price to their fly rod collection.

    I wanted a second 5wt and after casting a few rods in this price range, I purchased the Carbon XL. I have used it in a warmwater stream for smallmouth and panfish and am currently using it for trout in WY. I have been very impressed with this rod and would recommend it to my friends.

    Great Rod for Trout
    Darren Fish (Michigan) | August 31st, 2020
    I purchased this as my first rod and was pleasantly surprised at how well it felt in hand, I paired this with the Sage Spectrum C reel and ordered the complete package through Reelflyrod it came set up and I was out fishing a couple days later after some yard practice. I have caught tons of trout on this rod with the biggest fish being a 13 1/2" brown and I am comfortable saying that it could easily catch a 20" brown.

    Casts like Butter
    Kelly Jesse (CO) | September 23rd, 2019
    I just took this rod fishing down the San Juan River in northern New Mexico for two day. Punched out dry flies effortlessly and threw weighted streamers with no issues. I am very pleased with this rod. I feel this rod is a good bargain at current price.

    I learned to fly fish on this and have absolutely no regrets, my grandfather who taught me has been fly fishing for 65+ years and run the gamut of rods, he liked this as well!
